choice but to try to do it. we'll see where the help of jim lehrer, the moderator, exactly how he uses this moment. >> talk to you in a moment. whenever there's a big night involving politics, you can bet larry kudlow is involved. he's here on set with us. you were disappointed with mitt romney on the convention at large. is this a time to reform that. >> particularly on the economy and jobs. at the whole republican convention and mitt romney's speech set that campaign back several weeks in my opinion. they got no bump and no bounce. in fact, they probably got a negative bounce. so tonight it is incumbent on him to do two things. one is make the big picture. he's the free enterpriser and president obama is the big government planner. and those are big differences in philosophy in government. two, romney has a tax cut plan. he has a spending cut plan. he has an energy plan. he's got to make it clear. he's got to explain to people the connection between his plans and the economic recovery that we have not yet had. that's a tall order for romney. and he's going to have to fight hard for i

be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls moving in their directions. one of the top priorities tonight is to maintain that trajectory. the romney campaign also says the gop nominee will not be looking to score a knockout tonight but will instead zero in on the president's handling of the economy. you can say that the romney game plan for tonight can be boiled down into two key phrases. do no harm and live to fight another day. just a few hours before one of the most important nights of his political life, mitt romney walked tough the debate site in denver prepped for his first one-on-one face-off with the president. campaign officials tell cnn romney's game plan tonight is to provide a clear choice, talk about his plan to create jobs and contrast that with the president's performance on the economy. and in a sign of caution, the campaign says romney won't be looking for a knockout punch. one of romney's top surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that

. >> for america's future. jim vandehei with politico. >> saw him kicking a puppy at dupont circle yesterday. >> he did. actually, it was on the hill, so he must have kicked two puppies yesterday. jim. >> how is that for an introduction? >> and a good morning to all of you. >> we welcome our guest jim. we love you. let's talk about your big piece this morning. you and mike allen written one a lot of people talking about today. the romney family rebellion, tell us what happened. >> yeah, i think it's a pretty interesting look in what's happened behind the scenes in the romney campaign over the last two to three weeks and what you've seen is really the family asserting itself with mitt romney. particularly ann romney and tagg romney. softening his image, projecting a more moderate image, particularly in the debate and since then. and i think the victim in all of this would be stewart stevens, the chief strategist from the beginning and several campaign officials have told us he's been fenced in. basically doing ads, not doing a lot of the grand strategy. that's been turned over to people like tagg ro
said i was going to be tougher than jim lehrer and i'm going to be. let's discuss a big issue that never came up in the debate and that is the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year, sequestration it is called unless the president and congress work out a deal. under what is called the warren act employers and this is not just federal employers, all companies must tell workers 60 days in it advance of mass layoffs but ten days ago the obama administration told companies with federal contracts to ignore the law, don't notify the workers of the coming layoffs as part of the fiscal sequestration and it would pick up the lawsuits resulting. what is wrong with that? >> another example of this administration ignoring or skirting the law to help the president's reelection chances. here is where we are. sequestration is going to be the law in january. we haven't seen the leadership from the president on this. he is worried because the companies know they have to lay people off and this they told congress this. omb says you don't have to comply with the law and the worst part is tha
said idle be tougher than jim lehrer and i'm going to be. what didn't come up in the debate is the fiscal cliff of tax increases come at the end of the year, sequestration as it is called, unless the president and congress work out a deal. under what is act, employers, this is not just federal employers, all companies, must tell workers, 60 days in advance, over mass layoffs, but ten days ago, the obama administration told companies with federal contracts to ignore the law, don't notifier workers of these coming layoffs, as part of the fiscal cliff, sequestration, and, it would pick up the legal costs from any losses. senator ayotte, what is wrong with that. >> it is quite shocking, chris, but it is another example of this administration ignoring or skirting the law, to help the president's re-election chances. because, here's where we are. sequestration is going to be the law in january, if we haven't seen the leadership on the president on this, and, he is worried because the companies know they'll have to lay people off and they've told congress this and, omb comes out wi
will watch. i think jim lehrer has stayed too long. i watched him in 2008 and he looked like willie mays. he was missing the curve ball by 18 inches and he really needs to step back. yes, i will watch. i want to hear what these men have to say. that guy from berkeley springs, west virginia, carl, the old geezer, he gets through about every two weeks and complaints. one more thing, brian lamb is much better looking than you. host: i won't argue. let's go to stanley on our independent line. do you plan to watch tomorrow night's debate? caller: no. this only one thing that can save the country and that to replace the irs with a fair tax. the top 20 countries in the world, we have the worst tax system. i am in the care society, living on social security. i could have a yard sale and all tax free. i put all my money back into the country. i spread it around, all the stores i go through and so on and so forth. i am the researcher for 14 friends and relatives with documented information on who in congress want to replace the irs. there are about eight or nine of them. allen west, i'm surprised he d
and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes
